Carspotting: Buick Riviera

Well, after midelectric crushed my Buick Reatta dreams, I thought of this Riviera.

These two GM pearls belong to my neighbor. The Riviera in the foreground is a 1996 model with a supercharged 3.8 liter V6. When new, it was good for 240 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.

He also owns the 1997 Cadillac STS in the background. The Northstar V8 was rated at 295 horsepower.

Oh, to be a wet blanket. I used to carpool in a Riviera just like the one pictured and the friend who owns the Reatta also had an ETC about the same vintage as the Seville. To stay positive, the Cadillac was a very good ride and felt like a luxury car. The Northstar V8 really moved!
